WMABA to Host Aluminum Repair Discussion

Panel of collision repairers will discuss the lessons they've learned about aluminum repair, investments to be made and how to navigate the process to become a certified facility.

The Washington Metropolitan Auto Body Association (WMABA) announced it will be holding an aluminum repair discussion on Jan. 22. A panel of collision repairers will discuss the lessons they’ve learned about aluminum repair, investments to be made and how to navigate the process to become a certified facility. Also present will be key vendors to address equipment and training issues you could face.

In addition, a recap will be given on the Society of Collision Repair Specialists’ “OEM Collision Technology Summit” at SEMA.

Some questions that will be addressed are:

  • How do you get into a certified program?
  • How are those repairers who dedicate themselves
    to the process differentiating themselves in the
    marketplace?
  • How do they get the return on that investment?
  • What are the key elements that a repairer needs to consider?

Also, part of the meeting will be dedicated to WMABA’s annual Board of Directors election and a state-of-the-industry report given by Executive Director Jordan Hendler.
